Upcoming Doom

Upcoming Doom

The prophecies supposedly penned by Gaz the Dark, foretelling the onset of doom to all of Yulari. Some claim that Gaz is a "man out of time", and that his prophetic writings stem from first hand knowledge gained by witnessing the events themselves. It is said that he appears as a man cloaked in darkness, and such figures have come to be seen as harbingers of doom in the time since his writings were transcribed from the walls of his prison cell.

The upcoming doom, as it were, is well documented in fine detail, real and imaginary. Many of the original transcriptions and related documents are kept at Trasumanar University. Such as the very striking "Walls of Nagrubara", a collection of rubbings taken from Gaz's cell. There are also a variety of derivative texts available on the market for those of a less scholarly bent. I refer you to these works.

What has been known by only myself and one other, until know, is that Gaz the Dark was slain during the Battle of Doomspire by Faz Tarloc. It is noted in the prison records of the time that Gaz was discovered one morning nearly cloven in twain, lying on the floor of his cell. I witnessed Faz delivering that very blow below the shadow of Doomspire.

Faz's whole strategy at Doomspire was predicated on this very purpose. With one of Gaz's minor predictions believed to involve Doomspire, a plan was set in motion. In Evermoon, in secret, it was determined by many wise in arcane matters that if one could destroy Gaz the Dark that it was quite possible that none of his predictions set after the time in which he was slayn would manifest. As of this writing, this theory has proven to be correct.

That finally explains Faz Tarloc's mishandling of the Battle of Doomspire (though not so much the rest of the war). However, the use of prophecy to impede prophecy does not seem wise. Also, I would submit that, since none of the prophecies of Gaz contained a date, it is impossible to claim that his predictions have been necessarily hindered.
